BLW- how much BM?

DS is 9.5 months old, and eating like a champ. He is starting to process solid food, as evidenced by his diapers. I read the book, feel confident about solid food and use the internet for food ideas if I get stuck.

My question is this- since it's Baby-led weaning is supposed to be BABY-LED, when does the breastfeeding stop? He usually drinks 5-6 times a day, (still), I know ~twice is for soothering/closeness time, but is there like a cut-off I should be doing for breast milk? Like, only mornings/night or something? I don't mind BF past a year, just wasn't sure what to expect by 1.

I still nurse my 14 mo old on demand and some days he eats a TON of food and other days, he doesn't eat much.

Re: BLW- how much BM?

My 15 month old DD is eating 3 meals a day and snacks and she still feeds on demand. The breastfeeding stops when your baby wants to stop if you do child led weaning, my DD has naturally dropped to first thing in the morning and last thing at night (big feeds) and random short feeds during the day.

Thanks so much for your input, I wasn't sure really how to approach the bf side of blw. I'll just keep doing what I'm doing and be happy!
